5.0 out of 5 stars This guy is the best thing since Michael Jackson, 25 Jun 2002
This review is from: SAADIQ RAPHAEL-INSTANT VINTAGE (Audio CD)
Raphael Saadiq has finally made the frightening steps to become solo. From the brilliant Lucy Pearl he came, which makes it a hard task on beating the tunes he wrote and performed with such spark.
On first impressions i thought he hadn't I was looking for that lucy pearl style in his records. I could not really find it then i knew it would be one of those albums that you need to listen and listen to, to love it. The thing about this guy is he has not stuck to the lucy pearl style at all, he has made his own style which can only be to his outstanding talent that he posses. He calls the type of music on the album GOSPEL/DELIC which is very true as to me he has made a new type of music. It is very gospel especially in 'Blind Man' it could be by Al Green. There is quite alot of duets on this album, but it works he doesn't care about whether there big names its all on talent. The best one for me and probably the best track on the album is 'Skyy, can you feel me' with the beautiful vocals of Rosie Kaye, who is unknown to me, but as soon as she gets a album done i will be the first one to get it.
As I said before this album gets better and better everytime i listen to it. Ok if your getting this because your a lucy pearl fan, do but you won't be getting the same funky rhythms its a lot more soulful but still has the effect to blow you away at this guys incredible talent
